Watch: R-Type Command unveiled for North America

This article is over 16 years old and may contain outdated information

A standing retail rumor pointed to Atlus making a deal with Irem for R-Type Tactics last year. Today, Atlus officially announced R-Type Tactics under its new name, R-Type Command. Name change aside, the portable, tactical experiment with the R-Type franchise is scheduled to come out on May 6. As a twist on the series players get to control the forces of Earth (read: a group of R9 fighters) in one campaign and the empire of Bydo aliens in another.
